The woman whose death led to a foeticide investigation

For generations, India has battled female foeticide. Although it is illegal for doctors to reveal the gender of babies during pregnancy, it is estimated that 600,000 baby girls are aborted every year.

The issue is in the spotlight again after 19 aborted foetuses were found by police in Maharashtra. The BBC spoke to the family of the woman whose death triggered the investigation.
